Sweet Pea Millet Burgers

When I first served this burger to my family, my boys both said it definitely bumped something off their “Top 5 Favorite Recipes” list, and this moved into the top 5 in its place. It is that good! The bonus is that is is quick to make.

Millet is actually a seed, gluten-free, and easily digestible. Why is millet so great?

** It does not feed yeast in the gut (Candida)

** It is a prebiotic, feeding the good bacteria in your gut

** It is alkaline

** It contains many nutrients such as: magnesium, calcium, manganese, tryptophan, phosphorus, fiber, and B vitamins.

It always excited me when I get to EAT to achieve optimal health. Make a burger and do your body some serious disease fighting, immune boosting good?? Yes please!

1 cup uncooked millet + 2 cups vegetable broth

1/2 cup sweet peas, shelled (you can use thawed frozen peas)

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

3 cloves garlic, minced

juice from 1/2 an orange

Himalayan Sea Salt, to taste

  1. To cook the millet: add the rinsed millet and the 2 cups of broth to a sauce pan and simmer covered,  on low heat until water is absorbed. About 30 minutes.
  2. In a food processor, add the sunflower seeds and garlic and pulse a few times. Add in the cooked millet and peas and run until it begins to form, then drizzle in the orange juice while the food processor is still running. Add sea salt to taste.
  3. Form patties with about 1/2 cup worth of the mixture and cook on a griddle or on a large skillet. Cook on medium high heat for about 4-5 minutes each side.
  4. Serve on homemade hamburger buns and top with sliced tomatoes, lettuce and caramelized onions!
